Periodontal Splinting: Weak, Mobile Teeth

 

Loose teeth are uncomfortable, especially when you try to eat food. The feeling of the tooth pulling away from the gum is felt.  It seems like an eternity, waiting for either the tooth to become loose enough to be extracted or strong enough to no longer be a problem.

Teeth become loose because of lost gum tissue, injury, orthodontic treatment, or pressure caused by tooth misalignment. A technique called periodontal splinting attaches weak teeth together, turning them into a single unit that is stable and stronger than the single teeth by themselves. The procedure is most commonly performed on the front teeth. The procedure is as simple as using composite material to attach, or splint, the loose teeth to the adjoining stable teeth. 

Contact our office today for a consultation since this condtions usually means that you have serous periodontal disease.
